Drake is one of Spotify’s most popular artists (obviously) and they informed fans that Scorpion generated over 10 million streams per hour. We’re not surprised that Drake breaking all kinds of first-day streaming records on both Spotify and Apple Music.
Expect Drizzy to make his debut at the top of the Billboard charts this week. The projections for the Toronto natives first week sales put him far ahead of the competition. Drake is on pace to sell between 870k-920k copies his first week, with 275k-300k being pure album sales.
